B&O Chessie “Repaint 1979+” offers one of the most classy railroad logos so frequently seen on freight cars over recent decades: the Chessie “sleeping cat.” This car has the largest Chessie logo you will ever see on an HO scale freight car! This group of cars represents the B&O Chessie Cumberland MD shops 1979 repaints of the original B&O cars, which were originally delivered in 1970. These cars stand out with the large yellow-painted doors, white “excess height” end painting, and galvanized silver roofs. They also include the safety-inspired “bowling ball” logo on them, as well as era-appropriate ACI and U-1 “wheel dot” stenciling! This Greenville car features Morton style crossover platforms, an Ajax hand brake housing, accurate End-of-Car Cushioning details with truck mounted brake hardware, and 70-Ton Barber S-2 Trucks with 33” wheels and accurate “Timken” roller bearing caps. Interestingly, B&O was the second-largest purchaser of the Greenville quad door box cars, and these eye-catchers went literally everywhere. We are now offering four B&O Chessie numbers. Chessie fans can now rejoice!
